2016 annual report

The annual report provides a window into the work EMM is doing in 11 regions of the world. For a more in-depth look at our vision for each region and the work taking place there, visit emm.org/regions. You can also stay connected with our work through news releases, feature stories, podcasts, photo galleries, and more at emm.org/stories. Thank you for taking the time to engage with our mission!

EMM’s regional representatives (RRs) are experienced missionaries who specialize, serve, and usually live in a particular region of the world. Due to their insight and experience, each RR provides valuable oversight for the EMM work happening in his or her region. This includes general guidance (for example, forming a mission vision and strategy for a region), and also counsel in specific situations. Recently, RRs were essential in helping two West Africa workers navigate a tricky situation.
